 Trading Card Game Tips from fans

 

September 2007
Leys play Follow the Leader
 

Yo, Ace here. haven't posted anything on pojo for awhile but that doesn't mean i haven't been reading. I have been looking at all the new decks that everyone have been posting and sad enough, they all look the same. Everyone runs Cyber Dragon, Mobius, Raiza, Thestalos, Malicious, Marshmallon, and other stupid things like that. I have gotten sick of going to my local tournament and winning it because i can predict almost their every move. Why, cause they run the same cards. Can someone tell me why everybody runs these cards? To me, all of these cards suck.
 
Let's be real for one moment. In a duel, when was the last time that a card in your opponent's hand effected a duel. Never. That's when. So what is the point of Thestalos. So what, it's 2400ATK and he can do a little bit of direct damage. If he discards a monster, since we can run 2 Pot of Advice, most likely, you will see that card again. So in a way, you wasted the effect.
 
Then there is Razia. What can i say about this card? I kinda like his effect. But why send a card back to your opponent deck. That just means your gonna see that card again. you might know what your opponent draws that turn, but do you know when gonna play it. if you send a continuous card back he/she is gonna wait until they have the right cards to develop a combo with that card. So once again, you might see that card again.
 
Now Malicious. Why do people run this card? I guess people don't know about Peten, the Dark Clown or Troop Dragon. I know that you can get Malicious anytime.But the only time your gonna get him is when your field is destroyed or when you need a monster to sack off. That's the only time i see Malicious effective. But now, thanks to the ban list, you can only use that effect once. Ha Ha.
 
Mobius. I cant say nothing about this card cause i run it and that would be hypocritical of me to talk about a card that i run. I really don't see nothing wrong with this card anyway except for the fact that everyone plus their momma abuses this card. Sorry Mobius. Shouldn't be so good.
 
Marshmallon. tis tis tis. this card already looks lame. At first i didn't know why people ran this card. But i read the card. Now i know. It doesn't have that lame effect that Spirit Reaper has.(you know if it is target with a spell or trap.) And it might have a plus since your opponent takes 1000 damage when he/she attacks it But the card is to rare. their isn't really a flaw with this card but your properly wont find it unless you go to the regional tournament. So if you find it, run it.
 
And last but not least.The one the only Cyber Dragon. To be honest, their isn't a flaw to this card.The only reason that I'm talking about this card. is because people run it wrong. I've seen decks on pojo and my the local tournament and wondered, are people really running this card right. There is a difference between a using a card in a tight spot and depending on that card. That what alot of people are doing.they act like you take out a few monsters and their last hope are their 1 or 2 Cyber Dragons. Ha ha ha ha. I wish someone would try to defeat me with a Cyber Dragon. If you allow your deck to be broken down that your last hope is a Cyber Dragon then you need to edit your deck.I run Cyber Dragon but i dont allow it to be the deciding factor in a duel. 
 
I guess the moral of my story is be above the influence. Just cause everybody else runs it doesn't mean you need to run it. It might run right for them cause that how the beat their opponent. So next time you build you deck, make sure you run cards that your use too. card that you are comfortable with and allow to defeat for opponent the way that you like.
This is Ace signing out.If you have any questions about anything you can email me at gamer042589@yahoo.com So until next time. Holla
